DUNEDIN, Florida – The Blue Jays dropped to 3-2 in Grapefruit League action following an 8-2 loss to the Yankees at Florida Auto Exchange Stadium on Sunday. Authentic Matt Irwin Jersey . Right-hander Todd Redmond took the loss. Jose Bautista hit his second home run of the spring. Here are a handful of tidbits from around camp: Hutchison impressive The Blue Jays are being cautious when talking about their young arms but internally, excitement is building over the way Drew Hutchison is looking and performing this spring. Hutchison is among those looking to secure an available spot in the starting rotation. According to the official radar gun at Ed Smith Stadium in Sarasota, Drew Hutchisons four-seam fastball topped out at 94 miles per hour during Saturdays start against the Orioles. The Blue Jays have different, even more encouraging information. Scouts had readings as high as 96 miles per hour. Hutchison, as is his custom when hes on his game, was locating his pitches and working the corners of the plate. Hutchison threw two innings, didnt allow a run, gave up one hit and struck out four. He threw 38 pitches, 25 for strikes. Anthopoulos looking to deal The Blue Jays have an abundance of bullpen arms and general manager Alex Anthopoulos continues to dangle some of that pitching depth in an effort to upgrade the ballclub. Toronto is looking for starting pitching help, which may be found internally (see above on Hutchison,) and an established right-handed bat off the bench. Sergio Santos, who was almost traded during the offseason, is a name that continues to come up in discussions. Seitzer thrilled with early returns New hitting coach Kevin Seitzer isnt just encouraged by the Blue Jays offensive start to spring training, hes thrilled. "I get goosebumps right now thinking about it," said Seitzer. "Getting timing in games is very, very difficult for hitters to do, especially early in camp. The quality of at-bats, the takes, the lack of panic, the plan, the approach, I couldnt be more pleased. They have been professionals every single day in their early work, batting practice routines. I havent heard one person complain about anything at all from an offensive standpoint." While Brett Lawrie has missed the last two games due to hamstring tightness, hes impressed Seitzer early with his gap-to-gap approach. The two continue to work on limiting Lawries movement in the batters box, including lessening Lawries hand waggle. "Were eating this elephant one bite at a time and my focus is opening day to where hes dialing in," said Seitzer. "But where he continues to try and do it, quieting down, keep those hands still when hes loading, hes getting results. He took 96 mph the other way the other day on that lefty who had a good fastball and it was middle in. He didnt panic, he didnt force it, he didnt jerk, all he did was stay short and stay inside and he smoked a ball past first. The opposite field doubles hes hit driving the ball the other way, he told me right out of the gate that was his focus the last month and a half when he started to have some success." By the time he first met the media in January, during the winter caravan, second baseman Ryan Goins had taken Seitzer up on an open invitation to visit his home in Kansas City. It was an opportunity for the two to become acquainted and lay a foundation for the work theyre doing this spring. Seitzer believes Goins could be a .270 or .280 hitter in the big leagues, suggesting he has the mental acumen to develop into a .300 hitter. "I dont like dropping ceilings on guys because you just never know," said Seitzer. "You never know how hes going to be able to handle big-league pitching on a daily basis and be able to make the adjustments that he needs to make. But so far, everything Ive seen has been very good, very positive, that hes going to be able to make those adjustments that he needs to make. But that remains to be seen, theres been a lot of hitters that Ive worked with that are really good in the cage, in batting practice but then putting it into the game is the last big challenge. But I think mentally and emotionally, hes tough enough to have the discipline to be able to do that everyday." Janssen sore Casey Janssen is dealing with stiffness in his pitching shoulder, which has prevented him from maintaining a normal spring schedule, including regular bullpen sessions and appearances in Grapefruit League games. "I think its just the inflammation," said Janssen. "Its going to subside. Just take a couple of days off and get right back on and start throwing again." Janssen underwent an MRI, which revealed inflammation in the back of his shoulder, where the decelerator muscles are located. Last spring and for most of last season, Janssen was hampered by soreness in his rotator cuff, the result of surgery he had in the 2012-2013 offseason. "It always sucks but I think I know how to get ready," he said. "I was looking forward to a normal spring, coming with all the guys and thats what I was expecting but unfortunately, I havent been in a game yet and all the other stuff but Ill get there. Eyes are on opening day like they always were." Janssen wont pick up a baseball for at least two more days. Hell attempt to play long toss and if his shoulder reacts positively, hell progress to bullpen sessions and then work his way into games. Rasmus Scratched Colby Rasmus was in manager John Gibbons Sunday lineup but removed himself due to a stiff neck. "I just woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning," said Rasmus. "Got a little crink in my neck. Just one of those things, after throwing and warming up, I just feel like I need to take myself out just as a precaution. In a couple of days, I should be fine." Clubs typically travel skeleton rosters to far away places and so its likely Rasmus wasnt going to play on Monday in Fort Myers, against the Twins, anyway. He hopes to return on Tuesday. "Normally you throw some hot sauce on there and go about your business," said Rasmus. "It just kind of locked up a little tighter." Yankees almost smoked out The Yankees briefly considered evacuating the visitors clubhouse before Sundays game at Florida Auto Exchange Stadium when smoke from an over-heated dryer began to waft into the locker room. The matter was quickly brought under control. Perez and Ohka reassigned Left-hander Juan Perez and right-hander Tomo Ohka, whos making a comeback attempt as a knuckleball pitcher, have been reassigned to minor league camp. The Blue Jays now have 58 players remaining in major league camp. Nashville Predators Outlet Store .7 million, one-year contract, a raise of $2.2 million. Wieters had asked for $8.75 million and the Orioles had offered $6. Authentic Ryan Ellis Jersey . The Ravens werent about to let it happen again. Carleton picked up its fourth straight national mens basketball title, and 10th in the last 12 years, with a 79-67 victory over its crosstown rival on Sunday. http://www.cheappredatorsjerseysauthentic.com/?tag=authentic-ryan-hartman-jersey .C. -- Jackson Whistle made 26 saves for his first shutout of the season as the Kelowna Rockets blanked the visiting Lethbridge Hurricanes 5-0 on Saturday in Western Hockey League action.TORONTO - Although no one could quite explain the cause or prescribe a cure, that 12-minute stretch coming out of the halftime break used to be a troublesome time for Dwane Caseys club. Those third-quarter woes that plagued the Raptors for years, up to and including last season, appear to be a thing of the past. Entering Wednesdays game, Toronto had outscored opponents by 96 points in the third this season - only two NBA teams (Clippers, Warriors) have a better mark. While the Raptors can sympathize, no one knows the third-quarter blues quite like these Sacramento Kings, who still had visions of a red-hot Klay Thompson dancing in their heads when they allowed Toronto put on yet another remarkable shooting display. That was a huge, Casey said after his team rode a big third-quarter run to their decisive 119-102 win over Sacramento. That was something that we werent getting in the first half. I thought the defence set the tempo for our offence. We started being more aggressive offensively. With Sundays game in New York cancelled due to weather concerns, the Kings have had five days to think about Thompsons record-setting performance. The Warriors guard dropped 37 of his 52 points in the third, shooting a perfect 13-for-13 from the field, 9-for-9 from three-point range in the quarter. The Raptors added to that nightmare. Toronto led by just one point when DeMarcus Cousins, a long-time Raptor killer, went to the bench with four fouls five minutes into the frame. Outscoring the rested visitors 26-10 over the remainder of that period, the Raptors dropped a total of 39 points in the third, shooting 67 per cent and hitting eight of their 10 attempts from beyond the arc. Neither Greivis Vasquez and Lou Williams, who took six of them, missed a shot. Just playing with energy, said Williams, who scored a game-high 27 points on the night, hitting four of the Raptors season-high 17 three-pointers. I think we were able to get stops, big momentum plays, I think Greivis did a good job of making two big shots right out of the locker room after halftime. I think thats what sparked us. After that, its contagious when the ball is flying around and everybody is playing together. Seven Raptors scored in double figures and seven knocked down at lease one triple, as the team shot 50 per cent from long distance, picking up their fifth win in six games following a worrisome 2-7 stretch to begin the new year. It was great for us, especially back on an upswing, winning some games, Williams said. The whole locker room is playing well and everybodys contributing, its huge for us. I think it was big for us. This was their most convincing victory over that stretch. Despite the Kings 16-28 record and recent slide - losers of seven in a row - they havent been an easy out for the Raptors over the years. Cousins came into his eighth career meeting with Toronto averaging 22.9 points against them - his highest versus any opponent. With the sparingly used Chuck Hayes leading the charge defensively, the Raptors held Cousins in check. The dominant centre totalled just 13 points in 30 minutes, committing nine turnovers. Sacramento came into the game outscoring opponents by 6.8 points per 100 possessions with him on the floor, outscored by 12.5 when hes on the bench. I think our bigs did a great job, especially Chuck, Williams said. Chuck gets thrown into that fire, we expect a lot out of him when we do that and he answers every time. So tonight was no different. Just to make catches difficult on DeMarcus and just try to play the best we can. Authentic Nick Bonino Jersey. I think we did a great job defensively as a unit just to make it tough but the bigs especially did a great job. The victory ensures that Toronto will enter the upcoming all-star break with their highest winning percentage in franchise history. Were in a good spot, Casey said after the game, preaching positivity. There shouldnt be any negativity in the room and thats just what I told that players. Every time we get a win, we start looking, we didnt do this, we didnt that, we didnt do this, we didnt do that. A couple years ago Id have been happy standing up here talking about a W. So, were in a good place. Weve got to keep growing and getting better, were not there yet but lets keep that positive vibe of getting better and doing it as a team and be proud of this team and be happy for it. STAUSKAS COMES HOME Nik Stauskas is no stranger to the Air Canada Centre. Ive been in this building 100 times as a fan, the Kings rookie and Mississauga-native said ahead of Wednesdays game, his first as a visiting NBA player in Toronto. This is my first time as a pro, and Ive just got to go out there and treat it like any other game, just play with a clear mind and go out there and have fun. Whats there to be nervous about, after all? Only 200 of his friends and family stared down from the stands as he made his way to the scorers table for the first time, nearly 10 minutes into the game. Borrowing a bunch of tickets from his teammates (each player is given a pair for each road game) in addition to the 50-seat block his mother had reserved months ago, Stauskas made the most of a moment he had been dreaming of since he was a kid. In 17 minutes off the bench, he certainly didnt show any nerves. Stauskas knocked down his first two shots, finishing with eight points in his Toronto debut. Drafted eighth overall out of Michigan this past summer, Stauskas has found that transitioning to the NBA is harder than he imagined. Playing time has been sporadic for the rookie and so has his performance. Known for his impressive range and three-point accuracy coming into the league - he shot 44 per cent from long distance in two seasons with the Wolverines - Stauskas has struggled to knock down shots as an NBA player, shooting 35 per cent from the field and hitting the three-ball at a 28 per cent clip. I would just say its mental more than anything, said Stauskas. Just being ready all the time, not focusing too much on the highs and the lows. A good example, Klay [Thompson] the other night had 37 on us in a quarter and then last night he went 0-for-13 from three. Its crazy how from night-to-night things can change like that and you cant let it affect you too much. Just going through times where I wasnt playing a lot or I wasnt playing well, I didnt know how to handle it day-to-day with those kinds of things going on. Ive just kind of learned how to stay even-keeled more often and not worry about those things all that much. More than anything else, hes learning what most rookies come to realize. There are no shortcuts in this league. Very few first-year players, regardless of their resume coming in, are able to avoid these growing pains to achieve immediate success. Ive obviously struggled this year, the 21-year-old said. Everybodys just told me keep my head up. Everybodys just told me keep working hard, keep my head up and good things will come.
